These were side lit with a studio light but I have just used on board flash before. Jason Jasbe32UK has just put an article on epz here where he uses a lightbox underneath the stick, I havent tried this yet but may well later. No Matt, not yet LOL! Thank you all for your comments. K.

Thanks for the link. Watch out I may be on the case of a bird (I presume Matt means of the feathered variety) shaped smoke trail.

Brilliant picture. Like the colour and composition. I have tried this myself but have not quite figured what to burn to get decent shapes. Tried cigarettes and matches and smelly sticks, what do you use?

First of all well done, i really like the pattern captured here for the smoke. however I was wondering what type of smoke you used here, and are the colors captured by using various colored gels or it was added afterwards in ps...

Thank you all so very much Smile

The colours were created in photoshop using a gradient and I think it was overlay mode set at 50% but its a question of experimenting with this sort of thing, alot dont work.

Roy, bubbles, smoke - love em both and still on a mission to capture the perfect one of each Wink K.
